Liverpool is showcasing its best pets this National Pet Month.

The national event runs until May 3 and is a great opportunity to see some of Liverpool’s greatest animals.

Pets are the extra member of the family that come in and change peoples’ lives.

They are good for both a cuddle and a laugh as these pets across Liverpool have shown.

Meet Rocco

Meet Pidge

Pidge the dog by Lily Scholes.

Lily Scholes’ King Charles – Cavalier cross got himself into a difficult situation when he mistook ice for solid ground and fell into a lake in Walton Hall Park. Lily said: “He had never swam before but luckily instinct kicked in, now he won’t even walk across a puddle.”

Meet Banter and Bailey

National Pet Month
Banter and Bailey the dogs by Ryan May

Banter and Bailey are Ryan May’s two boxer dogs. She said that not long ago, she was having her home plastered and she left for 20 minutes only to find on her return the two dogs had ripped up three bags of plaster, spreading it all over themselves and the house.

Ryan May said: “the two culprits were no longer ginger, but ghostly grey.” Several vet bills and a professional house cleaning later and all was well again.


National Pet Month aims to celebrate responsible pet ownership and appreciate our furry friends.
